Where Are All the People....Connecting

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

7,133-That's how many pages of 'inactive' Missouri Sparkers there are... emoticon

TEN pages of active members within the last 30 days...where have all the people gone???

I've been one of the 'missing' before...the reasons for being here or not being here on Spark are different for each of us... emoticon

We MAY be here because...

1) We've found success here
2) We're just getting started
3) We've made connections here
4) It's a great resource
5) Spark is free & easy to use
6) We want to change
7) We want to maintain
8) We want to learn
9) We're lonely
10) We're welcomed

We MAY NOT be here because we....

1) Lost momentum
2) Failed to make connections
3) Lost interest
4) Found healthy alternatives
5) Grew 'addicted' and stepped away
6) Got the results we wanted
7) Didn't get the results we wanted
8) Lost sight of our goals
9) Met goals & went off on our own
10) Hmmm....

When I see all those pages of faces/names, I wonder & hope they're where they want to be emoticon

When I look back over my journey, both on & off Spark, I know that I'm better 'on' than 'off', yet I get why I left, as well as why others drift away...how about you???

So, what about that...

Are we making connections with at least a few others here? emoticon

I know I try to touch base weekly with my 'friends' and support others with comments on blogs or 'goodies' once in a while emoticon

I know that it makes my day to get a goodie or comment on my page emoticon

What connections have you made today? How have others influenced you?

    I have also been on that "missing" roll call. For me, personally, my life got to be so overwhelming I was having trouble putting one foot in front of the other. I've also been dealing with chronic pain so bad that I understand why some people commit suicide. I would never do that, but before I couldn't understand what they were going through.

    Don't give up. If posting helps you, then do it. I know your comments and posts have helped me. Thank you!

    I'm here. At, at least for the next 90 days, I've committed to not leaving. (No matter what the outcome)
    Posting and checking in seems to make a huge difference.

    I like to touch base on SP daily. It helps to keep me from giving up on myself. I haven't done the best job with my nutrition this summer, but I think it might have been worse if I wasn't connected.

    I HAVE to be connected. It is a huge part of my success and definitely there is a problem going on if I disconnect.

    emoticon I know how you feel. There are times when I feel so alone.
